Are You Stressed Out or Feeling Overwhelmed?

You may experience stress if you:
  • Feel under pressure
  • Are taking care of an elderly or sick family member
  • Demand perfection from yourself
  • Are getting married or are going through a divorce
  • Have a chronic illness or injury
  • Don’t have much control over the outcome of a situation
  • Are grieving the death of a loved one
  • Have responsibilities that you find overwhelming

What is Stress?

Stress is a normal psychological and physical reaction that happens to everyone. It’s a feeling of emotional or physical tension that makes you feel irritable, overwhelmed, or anxious.

While stress affects us all, what causes stress in one person may be of little concern to another. Some even people cope with stress better than others. If you’re feeling stressed and lack a strong support network, stress therapy can help. A therapist can help you reduce stress levels, cope in healthy ways, and enhance your sense of well-being.

Reduce Your Stress with Therapy

When you’re under too much stress, it impacts your physical and mental health, especially if you don’t have positive coping skills. If you’re constantly under stress that interferes with your day-to-day functioning, we can help.

There are many coping strategies and available treatments to help you reduce your stress. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is often an effective form of therapy for stress. CBT is highly recognized among the psychological community because it’s been extensively researched and proven effective.

CBT for stress is a hands-on and solutions-focused approach that helps individuals identify their thinking and behavioral patterns and adopt healthier thinking and behavioral patterns to relieve their symptoms and improve their feelings.
